Insane Works of Sandwich Art


You know how Pinterest can make you feel like a slacker mother whose cooking and homemaking and craft skills don’t compare with all the other mothers out there? Well, today for a change, it made me feel normal. No way would any sane mother present sandwiches like these to her children…

Somehow, I think my kids will survive on plain old peanut butter and jelly just fine.

Plus, I won’t end up institutionalized when they chuck the masterpiece I spent three hours on directly into the trash can. Slacker moms for the win!

    I don’t know if the idea of eating half that stuff is bothering me more or if thinking about how much was wasted is bothering me more. A rat?? Yuck.

    Who has to work THAT hard to get their kids to eat?!? And you just know there’s some kid who whines “But I wanted a castle, not a pirate ship!” and refuses to eat anyway.

    Or on the floor, too!! Seriously, what kind of person made these and they must not have little kids, because every time I try to do anything I get interrupted about 20 times before I just give up on a even a good day!!

    I can barely get the pop tarts in the toaster let alone craft some bullshit food like that! I try…I really do… I just have this block or something. True Story : I wrote a blog post about my horrible breakfast making skills, and after school pick up I was talking to my 12. yr. old on the drive home. It went like this… Me: I wrote a blog post about how bad I am at making food. The 12. yr. old : Yeah…well my friend’s mom packs him sauteed veggies for lunch every day. Me : How the heck does she send veggies to school?? The 12 yr. old : Tupperware mom, she uses tupperware. Me : blink, blink, blink…

      You’re not a loser, you ‘re just too busy parenting! Pinterest is the opposite of original – it ‘s where people go to take others’ creative ideas (and usually fail at replicating them). I’m a wedding planner, and Pinterest is the bane of my existence. You want a thousand paper-folded cranes hanging from the 80ft ceilings of the historic church you booked? That sounds great! Who’s doing it for you? (Cuz I sure as hell ain’t!!)
